At Kainetik, our programmes are developed based on one philosophy: We believe that math is a life-long skill, and not just an exam tool, and learning it well at the primary school level equips students with the strong ability to analyse, think critically and make good decisions in life.
It is the focus of our coaches to ensure our students exercise their ‘math’ thinking muscles effectively and develop their interest which will help them do well in primary school math, and serve them in the future.
